This is a brand new unseen before shot, but the photoshoot itself isn’t new and was already used in 3 different publications in 2011: Elle (Ukraine) – June 2011, Elle (India) – June 2011 and Be (France) – August 19, 2011. The photoshoot itself can be found over here and it currently graces the layout of our gallery. Unfortunately the French magazine wasn’t very fond of Hansel & Gretel as a film.

Gravesend girl Gemma Arterton is back in fine butt-kicking form as witch killer Gretel in Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters. The Bafta-nominated actress talks about playing a feisty female, working with co-star Jeremy Renner and being a former Bond girl.

If you go down to the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise… because instead of teddy bears having a picnic, nasty witches have set up home in the depths of the dark forests, waiting to steal innocent youngsters.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, written and directed by Tommy Wirkola, is inspired by the Brothers Grimm fairytale – but with a new twist in the tale.

Following their escape from a cannibalistic witch when they were little, 15 years later brother and sister Hansel and Gretel (Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton) have conquered their fears to become witch killers. They’re fierce, formidably-skilled bounty hunters with a taste for blood and murder, and hell-bent on retribution.

“I love the original fairytale and this starts there, then makes a real departure,” says Arterton. “The film joins up with Hansel and Gretel in the midst of their fame as witch hunters.

“But it’s also a time when they’re starting to wonder who they are and why these terrible things happened to them – which leads them into a very tense situation. It’s really about the two of them and it’s original, a brother and sister bad-ass team.”

After being abandoned by their parents, the siblings have to work together to bring down a coven of witches who are planning the ultimate revenge against humankind – and to gain immortality.

“The sibling relationship is such a great one to explore. Hansel and Gretel have this unstoppable bond but they’re also so different from each other,” explains the actress. “She’s the brains of the operation, he’s the brawn. He’s the joker and the show-off. She’s more the watcher, the researcher, the one who tries to really understand witchcraft. They have to each play to their strengths.”

The 27-year-old, who graduated from RADA in 2007, enjoyed working with Renner, who was nominated for an Oscar for his performance in Kathryn Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker in 2010.

“Jeremy is so amazing at action, but he also has a lot of sensitivity when needed. He brings a lot of fun to their relationship,” she says. “He’s become a really good friend. We just have a very natural connection, very open-hearted and we trusted each other instantaneously. It was so important for us to get that brother and sister relationship right.” Read More

Song for Marion is out in UK cinemas today and almost a year ago, I sat down with fabulous British actor Gemma Arternon to chat about her role in the film as choir teacher Elizabet. Gemma is going from strength to strength with previous roles including Disney Princesses, Bond Girls and more recently a Witch Hunter in Hansel and Gretel. She’s also appeared in British independent movies Tamara Drewe and The Disappearance of Alice Creed along with everyone’s favourite St. Trinian’s. In this role, she plays a much more plain an serious character than I think we’ve ever seen from her before and it was great sitting down to discuss what she loved about the role, working on the script and what we can expect from her in the future.

Song for Marion goes in a very different direction but which is guaranteed to make you cry looking at what can happen when a grumpy old man finds himself in a situation where his world is about to be turned upside-down by the terminal illness of his long-term wife.

Song for Marion stars Terence Stamp, Vanessa Redgrave, Christopher Eccleston, Gemma Arterton and is guaranteed to make you cry. Our review is up here and you can read my great and frank interview with the brilliant, beautiful and talented actress that is Gemma Arterton below. You can also read our interview with Director Paul Andrew Williams here. Read More

Gemma Arterton has said that she will “always be sad” about missing out on playing Mary Poppins at the Olympics.

The Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters star was approached to play the iconic magical character during Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony, but was unable to work it into her schedule. Ultimately, Boyle chose to use several actors to play Mary Poppins.

Arterton told Digital Spy that she has “always wanted to be” the English nanny after growing up with the Disney movie.
